and outline the next steps i will take. as background, puerto rico has been a u.s. territory since 1898. the island is home to 3.7 million american citizens who cannot vote for president, are not represented in the senate, and elect a nonvoting member to the house. federal law is supreme in puerto rico but its residents are treated unequally under many federal programs. voters were first asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. over 1.7 million people answered. which is about 75% of registered voters on the island. 54% said they did not want the current status to continue while 46% said they did. voters were then asked to express their preference among the three viable alternatives to the current status. statehood, free association and independence. over 1.3 million people chose an option. 61% voted for statehood. 33% voted for free association. and 5.5% voted for independence. in addition, 472,000 voters did not provide an answer. this marked the first time voters were directly asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. one of the two main political pa

to the democrats. but the competitive u.s. senate race for republican jon kyl's old seat, that seat stayed republican. and yes, the county sheriff who did the whole taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than that, but did get re-elected. and that public publicity-hungry arizona sheriff is not the only arizona official who has lately been fixated on the president's birth certificate. the arizona secretary of state this year threatened to keep president obama off the ballot in arizona for this year's election. because, you know, kenya, or whatever. and because that is the record of arizona's secretary of state, the state's current top elections official, i think nobody had very high expectations for him in terms of how well he would do running elections in the state of arizona. and indeed, the arizona elections this year went horribly. and it took them 14 days to even come up with the results. but they do h
, and one of the topics that came up quite a bit was the attacks on the u.s. embassy and while those of us here that might obviously highlight the need for the securities sector reform i feel like a lot of tunisian actors interpret things very different and to some the less says that we need stronger security forces and that some of the changes, some of the modest changes we might see as positive and the very modest direction of the reform over the past year are seen by some as a cause for the week security forces and the call for incidents like the attacks on the embassies. if you can comment on this tension and how to address that. >> the iron fist notes the outrage. you want to jump in on this? >> sure. i mean, first of all i would sort of like to the secure a sector reform and egypt would weaken the security service more than it already is because there's been very little security sector reform as i don't see evidence of that. but also some of these the assumption that you are necessarily going after the leaders inside the security sector or security sector reform i think is a misconce

the largest block of senate women in u.s. history. and the house stays in republican hands. the fiscal cliff looming for congress. is speaker boehner ready to make a deal with the president and democrats? can the country afford another missed opportunity? good morning from new york city. it is the day after, wednesday, november 7, 2012. we have a special two-hour edition of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. ahead this morning, senator elect angus king of maine. who he will kau can cuss with. maggie hassan of new hampshire. new york congressman steve israel as well as my man that i like to talk about in the future of the republican party, mike murphy. righto my first reads. it took president obama exactly 12 minutes longer to win his second term than a first one. we called the 2000 race at 11:00. this time at 11:12 p.m. we're not even 12 hours removed from that moment yet and it's clear that the second obama term will face enormous challenges in trying to resolve the country's if iscal future and create a governing coalition to make that happen in washington but, first, let's look at how t
years in the u.s. economy, we have added more than 5 million jobs in the private sector. so it's been growing at around 2 million a year. under the romney call, what he's calling for to get 12 million, that would have to go up to 3 million a year from 2 million. a lot of people think that regardless of what happens in washington, you would probably see something along the lines of those, of those kind of rates because the economy will move its way back to the trend growth of 3%, 3.5%. i think one, you have to hope that the macroeconomy goes with you. two, i think the policy can make a difference on the margin. and there's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, cer

, it will be a combination of guard and reserve and u.s. army reserve -- i mean, guard and reserve and u.s. army and active. there are characteristics that are important. people have been confused with what has been going on in the last five years and what we want in the future. in my mind, what happened in iraq and afghanistan is exactly how we designed it to happen. the active component responding initially was able to get things a establish, and then as we needed more depth, we were able to move into the national guard and reserve. that worked very well we are way more organized now in the army. there are some national guard and reserve units that have to be ready to deploy very quickly. those tend to be combat service support outfit that require much less trading capability. the guard and reserves issue is time, not money, but time. they only have so much time to sustain regiments. the characteristic of an active deployment is ready, and to maintain a level of readiness that they can respond to over a longer time frame. as i go through this, i have to balance that and decide what i need as they go forw

a chance to turn the u.s. around and i believe he is genuine. thank you. host: the next caller from new york on the democratic line. caller: thanks for taking my call. that last call was interesting to me because it seems romney's solution is a big huge tax cut for the wealthy in this country. president obama came in with the bush recession and he's put the stimulus in place and he has put in many other policies that have helped this country stabilize and created 5 million jobs. and what will mitt romney do? cut taxes. that's not a solution. mitt romney has no credibility on domestic policy or international policy. if you're solution for everything that ails us is tax cuts, that's not going to work. look at the bush tax cuts from 04. in the debate, he agreed with president obama on 95% of everything and when he tried to get president obama on libya, he failed. he has no credibility. he will say anything to win and i think that's why president obama will prevail on november 7 because he deserves reelection. he's a great president. host: we can see mitt romney talking to supporters there

brazile. there were over 31 million tweets last night. the most tweeted about event in u.s. political history. perhaps no surprise there. but almost 328,000 tweets a minute when president obama was projected to win the election. it beat those tweets by 20 million. that was the first presidential debate by obama and governor romney. and take a look at a tweet that could go down as the most retweeted in history. it was barack obama's simple accounting of history last night. four more years, with a period. that equals 16 characters. by my math, he had 124 characters left. what a picture those three words, telling so much of the story. george? >> josh, thanks very much. >>> let's go to abc's jon karl about the house and the senate. republicans are going to stay in control of the house. one of the surprises last night, democrats, firmly in control of the senate. >> reporter: basically, the bottom line here, you have a congress that's more deeply divided than the one we just had. but the senate, this is a story of missed republican misses and losses. in massachusetts, the most closely-watch
